Coalition for Reason

Michele’s friend invited her to go see the new Twilight movie tonight. Four friends were planning on going to see the movie. Two are enamored with the movie and have seen it multiple times. Michele and another woman have not seen it and usually do not go ga-ga over movies like their friends.

Unfortunately for Michele, the other woman who has not seen the movie will not be able to come tonight. I joked with Chele about the fact that this creates an imbalance between crazed movie fan and not. It also reminded me of a quote I saw on The Office a few weeks ago:

Pam and Jim are on their honeymoon, so there’s not the usual balance between “sane” and “others.” Toby has mentally checked out since June. It’s a very dangerous time. The coalition for reason is extremely weak.

That kind of reminds me of my workplace environment. 🙂
